shoegaze

Does ye scurvy dog like pirates?  Yar in the right place.
Into filthy, nasty stuff that could be involved in serial killing? Look no further.
Wanna be pummeled while floating through space? We can help.
Feel like some throwback that maybe reminds you of a simpler time? We have something for that.
Craving a bit of all the above at the same time? Glad you found the podcast!  Also, you should probably watch this movie…and/or talk to a specialist.

After having a pretty epic episode last week (if we do say so ourselves), we have a little more low key of an episode here, though no more less eclectic than many of our others. What long time listeners will find interesting here (besides the music itself) is the difference between most the reviews Brian and Nick present.  There might be a “first” in here, which we note near the end, and there are definitely a few rarities.  Hopefully it all adds up to an interesting listen!  (Feel free to let us know either way in the comments.)

When it’s a slow week for major releases, we tend to branch out and try new bands, some of which come from the small labels who send us promo.  Like with all experiments, you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out until it’s over. Sometimes we find some truly awesome gems!  And sometimes…well, we find steaming piles dog poo.  So how did this week’s experiments turn out?  Get listening and you’ll find out.
